An abscess located in the abdominal cavity, i.e., the cavity between the diaphragm above and the pelvis below. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Accumulation of purulent material in tissues, organs, or circumscribed spaces, usually associated with signs of infection.
That portion of the body that lies between the THORAX and the PELVIS.
A circumscribed collection of purulent exudate in the brain, due to bacterial and other infections. The majority are caused by spread of infected material from a focus of suppuration elsewhere in the body, notably the PARANASAL SINUSES, middle ear (see EAR, MIDDLE); HEART (see also ENDOCARDITIS, BACTERIAL), and LUNG. Penetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA and NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES may also be associated with this condition. Clinical manifestations include HEADACHE; SEIZURES; focal neurologic deficits; and alterations of consciousness. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp712-6)
Solitary or multiple collections of PUS within the liver as a result of infection by bacteria, protozoa, or other agents.
Solitary or multiple collections of PUS within the lung parenchyma as a result of infection by bacteria, protozoa, or other agents.
Circumscribed collections of suppurative material occurring in the spinal or intracranial EPIDURAL SPACE. The majority of epidural abscesses occur in the spinal canal and are associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a vertebral body; ANALGESIA, EPIDURAL; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include local and radicular pain, weakness, sensory loss, URINARY INCONTINENCE, and FECAL INCONTINENCE. Cranial epidural abscesses are usually associated with OSTEOMYELITIS of a cranial bone, SINUSITIS, or OTITIS MEDIA. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p710 and pp1240-1; J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 1998 Aug;65(2):209-12)
Abscess of the PSOAS MUSCLES resulting usually from disease of the lumbar vertebrae, with the pus descending into the muscle sheath. The infection is most commonly tuberculous or staphylococcal.
Single or multiple areas of PUS due to infection by any ameboid protozoa (AMEBIASIS). A common form is caused by the ingestion of ENTAMOEBA HISTOLYTICA.
Single or multiple areas of PUS due to bacterial infection within the hepatic parenchyma. It can be caused by a variety of BACTERIA, local or disseminated from infections elsewhere such as in APPENDICITIS; CHOLECYSTITIS; PERITONITIS; and after LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.
Acute or chronic inflammation of tissues surrounding the apical portion of a tooth, associated with the collection of pus, resulting from infection following pulp infection through a carious lesion or as a result of an injury causing pulp necrosis. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Enteral nutritional supplementation with key nutrients in patients with critical illness and cancer: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled clinical trials. (1/198)

OBJECTIVE: To conduct a meta-analysis of 11 randomized controlled trials comparing enteral nutritional support supplemented with key nutrients versus standard enteral nutritional support to determine effects on morbidity and mortality rates and hospital stay. BACKGROUND DATA: Recent studies have shown that malnutrition occurs in up to 30% of patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery, resulting in an increased risk of postoperative complications and death. With the realization that key nutrients can modulate inflammatory, metabolic, and immune processes, enteral nutritional regimens (supplemented with large amounts of key nutrients) have been developed for clinical use. METHODS: Eleven prospective, randomized controlled trials evaluating 1009 patients treated with combinations of key nutrients (Impact, Immun-Aid) were evaluated. Outcome measures examined were the incidences of pneumonia, infectious complications, and death, and length of hospital stay. Meta-analyses were undertaken to obtain the odds ratio and 95% confidence interval for incidences of infectious complications, pneumonia, and death, and the weighted mean difference and 95% confidence interval for length of hospital stay. RESULTS: The provision of nutritional support supplemented with key nutrients to patients with critical illness resulted in a decrease in infectious complications when compared with patients receiving standard nutritional support and a significant reduction in overall hospital stay. Similar results were documented in patients with gastrointestinal cancer. However, there were no differences between patient groups for either pneumonia or death. CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis has demonstrated that nutritional support supplemented with key nutrients results in a significant reduction in the risk of developing infectious complications and reduces the overall hospital stay in patients with critical illness and in patients with gastrointestinal cancer. However, there is no effect on death. These data have important implications for the management of such patients.  (+info)

Imaging experimental intraabdominal abscesses with 99mTc-PEG liposomes and 99mTc-HYNIC IgG. (2/198)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the accuracy of technetium-99m-labeled polyethylene glycol-coated liposomes (99mTc-PEG liposomes) and technetium-99m-labeled nonspecific human immunoglobulin G (99mTc-HYNIC IgG) for the scintigraphic detection of experimental intraabdominal abscesses in comparison with that of a standard agent, gallium-67 citrate. BACKGROUND: Scintigraphic imaging techniques can be very useful for the rapid and accurate localization of intraabdominal abscesses. Two newly developed radiolabeled agents, 99mTc-PEG liposomes and 99mTc-HYNIC IgG, have shown to be excellent agents for imaging experimental focal infection, but have not yet been studied in the detection of abdominal abscesses. METHODS: Intraabdominal abscesses were induced in 42 rats using the cecal ligation and puncture technique. Seven days later, randomized groups of rats received 99mTc-PEG liposomes, 99mTc-HYNIC IgG, or 67Ga citrate intravenously. The rats were imaged up to 24 hours after the injection. The biodistribution of the radiolabel was determined by counting dissected tissues ex vivo. Macroscopic intraabdominal abnormalities and focal uptake on the images were independently scored on a semiquantitative scale. RESULTS: 99mTc-PEG liposomes provided the earliest scintigraphic visualization of the abscess (as soon as 2 hours after the injection vs. 4 hours for the other two agents). Liposomes, IgG, and gallium all showed similarly high absolute uptake in the abscess. Focal uptake of liposomes and gallium correlated best with the extent of the macroscopic abnormalities. CONCLUSIONS: 99mTc-PEG liposomes and 99mTc-HYNIC IgG performed at least as well as the standard agent, 67Ga citrate, in the detection of experimental intraabdominal abscesses, with obvious advantages such as lower radiation exposure and more favorable physical properties. Of the two technetium agents, the liposomes seemed to be superior, providing the earliest diagnostic image and the best correlation with the inflammatory abnormalities. In addition, the preferential localization of radiolabeled PEG liposomes holds promise for targeted delivery of liposome-encapsulated drugs.  (+info)

IL-2 mediates protection against abscess formation in an experimental model of sepsis. (3/198)

Little is known regarding the mechanism by which T cells control intraabdominal abscess formation. Treating animals with polysaccharide A (PS A) from Bacteroides fragilis shortly before or after challenge protects against abscess formation subsequent to challenge with different abscess-inducing bacteria. Although bacterial polysaccharides are considered to be T cell-independent Ags, T cells from PS A-treated animals mediate this protective activity. In the present study, we demonstrate that CD4+ T cells transfer PS A-mediated protection against abscess formation, and that a soluble mediator produced by these cells confers this activity. Cytokine mRNA analysis showed that T cells from PS A-treated animals produced transcript for IL-2, IFN-gamma, and IL-10, but not for IL-4. The addition of IL-2-specific Ab to T cell lysates taken from PS A-treated animals abrogated the ability to transfer protection, whereas the addition of Abs specific for IFN-gamma and IL-10 did not affect protection. Finally, administration of rIL-2 to animals at the time of bacterial challenge prevented abscess formation in a dose-dependent manner. These data demonstrate that PS A-mediated protection against abscess formation is dependent upon a CD4+ T cell-dependent response, and that IL-2 is essential to this immune mechanism.  (+info)

A meta-analysis of laparoscopic versus open appendectomy in patients suspected of having acute appendicitis. (5/198)

OBJECTIVE: To determine if any significant differences exist between laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) and open appendectomy (OA). DESIGN: A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing LA to OA. DATA SOURCES: An extensive literature search was conducted for appropriate articles published between January 1990 and March 1997. Articles were initially retrieved through MEDLINE with MeSH terms "appendicitis" or "appendectomy" and "laparoscopy". Additional methods included cross-referencing bibliographics of retrieved articles, hand searching abstracts from relevant meetings and consultation with a content expert. STUDY SELECTION: Only RCTs published in English in which patients had a preoperative diagnosis of acute appendicitis were included. DATA EXTRACTION: The outcomes of interest included operating time, hospital stay, readmission rates, return to normal activity and complications. The Cochrane Collaboration Review Manager 3.0 was used to calculate odds ratios (OR), weighted mean differences (WMD) and 95% confidence intervals (CI). The random-effects model was used for statistical analysis. DATA SYNTHESIS: Twelve trials met the inclusion criteria. Because there were insufficient data in some trials, operating time, hospitalization and return to work were assessed in only 8 trials. Mean operating time was significantly longer with LA (WMD 18.10 minutes, 95% CI 12.87 to 23.15 minutes). There were fewer wound infections in LA (OR 0.40, 95% CI 0.24 to 0.69), but no significant differences in intra-abdominal abscess rates (OR 1.94, 95% CI 0.68 to 5.58). There was no significant difference in the mean length of hospital stay (WMD -0.16 days, 95% CI -0.44 to 0.15 days) or readmission rates (OR 1.16, 95% CI 0.54 to 2.48). However, the return to normal activity was significantly earlier with LA (WMD -5.79 days, 95% CI -7.38 to -4.21 days). Sensitivity analyses did not affect the results. CONCLUSION: This meta-analysis suggests that operating room time is significantly longer, hospital stay is unchanged but return to normal activities is significantly earlier with LA.  (+info)

Inflammatory processes in a murine model of intra-abdominal abscess formation. (6/198)

Abscess formation has been viewed as a host defense strategy to contain the spread of infection. However, abscesses are also serious and life-threatening manifestations of persisting microbial infection. The initiation of abscess formation, both clinically and experimentally, involves the release of bacteria and an abscess-potentiating agent (e.g., fecal fiber or an analog) into a sterile site, with host defense mechanisms being unable to eliminate the infecting organisms. Abscess formation is aided by a combination of factors that share a common feature: impairment of phagocytic killing and hence clearance of microorganisms. These include bacterial virulence factors (e.g., capsule formation, succinic acid production); complement activation by the abscess potentiating agent; fibrin deposition; and microbial sequestration within abscess neutrophils. Recruitment of cells into the peritoneal cavity follows mast cell activation in the pathogenesis of infection: histamine and tumor necrosis factor alpha can be detected in the peritoneal cavity within minutes of challenge with an abscess-inducing mixture. However, the role of mast cells in host defense is made less clear by the finding of diminished abscess formation (but no mortality or increased morbidity) in mast-cell-depleted mice. This may indicate that mast cell products have a role in not only the initiation of an inflammatory response but also the promotion of fibrin deposition and abscess formation.  (+info)

Activities of the oxazolidinones linezolid and eperezolid in experimental intra-abdominal abscess due to Enterococcus faecalis or vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium. (7/198)

The in vivo effectiveness of oxazolidinones eperezolid (U-100592) and linezolid (U-100766) against one strain each of Enterococcus faecalis and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium was examined in a rat model of intra-abdominal abscess. MICs of both drugs were 2 microg/ml for each strain. At doses of 25 mg/kg of body weight twice daily intravenously or orally, linezolid produced small but statistically significant reductions in abscess bacterial density for E. faecalis. The reduction in viable cells observed would not likely be clinically relevant. Eperezolid was ineffective at this dose. At a dosage of 100 mg/kg/day, linezolid treatment led to an approximately 100-fold reduction in viable cells per gram of abscess. Against E. faecium infections, intravenous eperezolid and oral linezolid were effective, reducing densities approximately 2 log(10) CFU/g. Both oxazolidinones demonstrated activity against enterococci in this model. However, results were modest with the dosing regimens employed.  (+info)

Effect of molecular size on the ability of zwitterionic polysaccharides to stimulate cellular immunity. (8/198)

The large-molecular-sized zwitterionic capsular polysaccharide of the anaerobe Bacteroides fragilis NCTC 9343, designated polysaccharide (PS) A, stimulates T cell proliferation in vitro and induces T cell-dependent protection against abscess formation in vivo. In the present study, we utilized a modification of a recently developed ozonolytic method for depolymerizing polysaccharides to examine the influence of the molecular size of PS A on cell-mediated immunity. Ozonolysis successfully depolymerized PS A into structurally intact fragments. PS A with average molecular sizes of 129.0 (native), 77.8, 46.9, and 17.1 kDa stimulated CD4+-cell proliferation in vitro to the same degree, whereas the 5.0-kDa fragment was much less stimulatory than the control 129.0-kDa PS A. Rats treated with 129.0-kDa, 46.9-kDa, and 17.1-kDa PS A molecules, but not those treated with the 5.0-kDa molecule, were protected against intraabdominal abscesses induced by challenge with viable B. fragilis. These results demonstrate that a zwitterionic polysaccharide as small as 22 repeating units (88 monosaccharides) elicits a T cell-dependent immune response. These findings clearly distinguish zwitterionic T cell-dependent polysaccharides from T cell-independent polysaccharides and give evidence of the existence of a novel mechanism for a polysaccharide-induced immune response.  (+info)

Intra-abdominal sepsis was studied in Wistar rats by using four microbial species: Escherichia coli, enterococci, Bacteroides fragilis, and Fusobacterium varium. These organisms were implanted into the peritoneal cavity singly and in all possible dual combinations. Results were evaluated by mortality rates and the incidence of intra-abdominal abscesses on autopsy following sacrifice after 7 days. Mortality was restricted to recipients of E. coli, thus implicating coliforms in the acute lethality associated with this experimental model. Intra-abdominal abscesses were produced in 61 of 95 (94%) animals that received the combination of an anaerobe and a facultative organism. Abscesses failed to form with any single strain or with E. coli plus enterococci, and they were detected in one 1 of 19 animals receiving B. fragilis plus F. varium. These results suggest that intra-abdominal abscess formation is related to synergy between anaerobes and facultative bacteria. ...

The dynamics of leucocytes in abdominal abscesses were studied using indium-111 autologous leucocyte scanning in 30 patients. Thirteen patients showing enteric drainage of leucocytes on delayed scans were characterised by a lack of abdominal localising signs and a low detection rate by ultrasound (25%). By contrast, 16 of 17 patients without enteric drainage had abdominal signs, and in these patients ultrasound was associated with a higher detection rate (58%). Despite the presence of an enteric route of drainage for the abscess 10 of the 13 patients needed surgical intervention. These results help explain the wide variation in clinical presentation of abdominal abscesses; suggest that 111In leucocyte scanning should be the initial investigation in those patients without focal signs; and show that formal surgical drainage is needed in patients recognised as having enteric communication with abscesses. ...

Intra-abdominal abscess (IAA), also known as intraperitoneal abscess, is an intra-abdominal collection of pus or infected material and is usually due to a localised infection inside the peritoneal cavity. It can involve any intra-abdominal organ or can be located freely within the abdominal or pelvic cavities, including in between bowel loops. IAA is almost always secondary to a pre-existing or other disease process. [1] Otagiri N, Soeda J, Yoshino T, et al. Primary abscess of the omentum: report of a case. Surg Today. 2004;34:261-264.

The polysaccharide capsule of Bacteroides fragilis has been shown to be important in the virulence of the organism. The capsular polysaccharide (CP) of B. fragilis has been extensively purified. Using a murine model of intraabdominal abscess formation, we have been able to demonstrate cellular immunity to the capsular polysaccharide of B. fragilis. Immunization of C57BL/10J mice with the CP over 5 wk prevents abscess formation when the mice are challenged with B. fragilis intraperitoneally. This immunity can be transferred to naive mice with spleen cells from immune animals. The immune cells bear Thy-1.2 and Ly-2.2 antigens. The immune response has been shown to be antigen specific, but not H-2 restricted. The possibility that these immune cells are suppressor T cells is discussed. The experimental system presented provides a model for the examination of the cellular interactions responsible for abscess formation and the cellular response to bacterial pathogens. ...

Most common is primary peritonitis, occurring without a documented source of infection elsewhere. When such infection appears as a complication of preexisting ascites, organisms probably reach the peritoneal cavity by translocation from the bowel. Peritonitis in the absence of prior peritoneal disease almost always occurs in females. In such cases, it is highly likely that organisms reach the peritoneal cavity by migration via the female genital tract; clinically recognizable infection of the genital organs may be present or absent. Actual hematogenous dissemination of organisms from an infected focus does not play a prominent role, as shown by the extraordinary ...

Abstract: Abstract Background: Community-acquired complicated intraabdominal infections (cIAIs) present problems for clinicians and have substantial impact on hospital resources. Because of the polymicrobial nature of these infections, successful management of cIAIs depends on timely and appropriate use of antisepsis and antiinfective strategies. Methods: The literature pertinent to this article was reviewed. Results: The Surgical Infection Society and the Infectious Disease Society of America guidelines recommend a variety of single and combined antimicrobial therapies, including fluoroquinolone therapy, for prophylactic and definitive treatment of cIAIs with different severities. Moxifloxacin, a fluoroquinolone, demonstrates a broad spectrum of antimicrobial (including anaerobic) activity, good tissue penetration into the gastrointestinal tract, and a good tolerability profile. Clinical data also have demonstrated that moxifloxacin is effective as monotherapy for patients with cIAIs. This ...

Most abscesses are caused by a bacterial infection. The bacteria usually enter the breast through small cracks or breaks in the skin of the nipple, which can sometimes develop during breastfeeding.. Infections can also be caused by an overgrowth of bacteria that usually exist quite harmlessly within the milk ducts (the tiny tubes inside the breast that carry milk). An overgrowth of bacteria can occur if stagnant milk collects in a blocked milk duct.. When bacteria enter your body, your immune system (the bodys natural defence) tries to fight them off by sending white blood cells to the affected area. As the white blood cells attack the bacteria, some of the tissue at the site of the infection dies, creating a small, hollow pocket.. The pocket starts to fill with pus to form an abscess. The pus contains a mixture of dead tissue, white blood cells and bacteria. As the infection progresses, the abscess may get bigger and more painful as more pus is produced.. ...
Any approach to treatment of patients with sepsis will be ineffective if the underlying infectious cause is not eliminated. Once a diagnosis of sepsis is suspected, a thorough search for the likely source must be conducted, remembering the big 5 common culprits: lungs, abdomen, urine, wounds, and indwelling devices (especially catheters in hospitalized patients). Clinical signs and symptoms, appropriate microbiological cultures, and relevant imaging techniques must be used to try and determine where the infection is sited. Eradication of the source then involves not only adequate antimicrobial agents but also removal of any focus of infection, including iatrogenic causes such as drains or intravascular catheters. Surgical intervention may be necessary in some cases, e.g., if the infection is the result of a perforated diverticulum or an intra-abdominal abscess not amenable to percutaneous drainage.. Adequate antibiotic medication must be started as soon as possible-the Surviving Sepsis Campaign ...

  • The phagocytic activity of these cells degrades cellular and bacterial debris, creating a hypertonic milieu that expands and enlarges the abscess cavity in response to osmotic forces. (
  • A cavity is created, which fills with pus to form an abscess. (
  • Surgical complications can develop and include:[citation needed] Allergic shock due to anesthetics A paradoxical reaction to a drug Infection The development of TOA is thought to begin with the pathogens spreading from the cervix to the endometrium, through the salpinx, into the peritoneal cavity and forming the tubo-ovarian abscess with (in some cases) pelvic peritonitis. (
  • However, if the seal fails to form, fluid in the gastrointestinal tract can leak into the abdominal cavity. (
  • a Before the endoscopic closure: contrast fills the cecal lumen (arrow) through the abscess cavity. (
  • He had ultrasound guided drainage of the abscess cavity with significant clinical improvement and abscess regression. (
  • Entry of the abscess cavity reveals thick pus with loculations which does not drain easily so the incision is enlarged and a gauze drain is placed within the cavity. (
  • The abscess cavity gradually closes and shrinks. (
  • A burst appendix may spill bacteria into the abdominal cavity, which may cause peritonitis, an infection that can become life-threatening. (
  • In unborn calves, the navel cord, more commonly known as the umbilical cord ( which will eventually become the belly button ) is a hollow tube in the belly that provides direct access to the abdominal cavity and liver. (

  • In some cases the drainage tube can be placed in the abscess without an operation. (
  • Via the small cut and with the help of special X-rays, the drainage tube is put into your abdomen and directed into the abscess to allow it to drain through the skin. (
  • Although this procedure is obviously simpler compared to an operation, it is not always successful and it doesn't work in situations like yours where the liquid pus in the abscess is very thick and therefore doesn't drain freely through the drainage tube. (
  • An understanding of these anatomic considerations is important for the recognition and drainage of these abscesses. (
  • After treatment, the patient experienced revision surgery, repair of hernia with mesh, drainage of abdominal wall abscess, excision of infected mesh, exploration and debridement of abdominal wound, component separation, and wound vac. (

  • This was later followed by an ultrasound guided percutaneous drainage of the hepatic abscess. (
  • Without spontaneous or surgical drainage, an abscess occasionally resolves slowly after proteolytic digestion of the pus producing a thin, sterile fluid that is resorbed into the bloodstream. (
  • Risk factors for abscess formation are immunosuppression, the presence of foreign bodies, obstruction to normal drainage of a visceral tract (e.g., respiratory, biliary, or a sweat gland as in acne), areas of low oxygen tension and stasis (e.g., ischemic tissue or hematomas), and trauma (1). (
  • For superficial abscesses, incision and drainage with or without antibiotics is indicated. (
  • Treatment of a deep-seated abscess consists of drainage and antibiotics active against the responsible bacteria. (
  • Without sufficient drainage, antibiotics are ineffective, because the necrotic center of abscesses are not vascularized (i.e., no antibiotic is delivered to organisms within the abscess). (
  • Drainage of the abscess may be carried-out under ultrasound guidance, though in some dogs, abdominal surgery may be required. (

  • A tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) is one of the late complications of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and can be life-threatening if the abscess ruptures and results in sepsis. (
  • Abscesses can lead to serious complications such as bacteremia, rupture into neighboring tissue, bleeding by erosion into nearby vessels, impaired function of the affected organ or systemic effects. (
  • There were no differences in overall post-surgical complications, including anastomotic leak and abdominal abscess, the authors noted. (
  • Therefore, this study aimed to investigate if increased adherence to protocol in major emergency abdominal surgery influenced post-operative complications and mortality. (
  • Due to these complications, our magnet size was decreased and our technique altered to include 2 external magnets, first, attracting the small bowel and stomach to the anterior abdominal wall and then bringing the 2 endolumenally placed magnets into opposition, avoiding other intra-abdominal organs. (
  • Prehabilitation for abdominal wall procedures provides an opportunity to further modify patient risk factors for surgical complications. (
  • More intense symptoms are associated with serious complications such as perforation, abscess or fistula formation. (
  • Emergency measures-including diverticulitis surgery -may be required in the event antibiotics are not effective or complications develop, like perforation, abscesses, peritonitis or rectal bleeding that cannot be arrested. (
  • Major complications are spreading of the abscess material to adjacent or remote tissues and extensive regional tissue death (gangrene). (
  • Sometimes the abscess drains into other organs such as the bowel and the lung or spreads around inside your tummy. (
  • Small bowel interloop abscesses may develop anywhere from the ligament of Treitz to the ileum. (
  • Exposure of the bowel to prosthetic mesh or a large abdominal defect can lead to wall erosion, resulting in enterocutaneous fistula. (
  • Intra-abdominal abscess Transmural bowel inflammation results in bowel perforation and intra-abdominal and pelvic abscess formation in up to 30% of Crohn's patients. (

  • CT enterography is used to evaluate the small bowel, while CT abdomen/pelvis may be performed if there is suspicion of an abscess or perforation of bowel. (
  • The signs and symptoms of tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) are the same as with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) with the exception that the abscess can be found with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), sonography and x-ray. (
  • The symptoms associated with abscess formation vary depending on what organ is affected. (
  • If you have symptoms of a hernia (dull ache in groin or other body area with lifting or straining but without an obvious lump), the doctor may feel the area while increasing abdominal pressure (having you stand or cough). (
  • The health care provider will perform a physical exam, focusing on the symptoms of the abscess. (

  • Abdominal abscesses and gastrointestinal fistulas. (
  • These abscesses can cause painful anal fistulas in some circumstances. (
  • The abscesses usually contain a mixture of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria from the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. (
  • When bacteria gets under the surface of your skin, an abscess can form. (
  • Bacteria can get into your skin and cause an abscess if you have a minor skin wound, such as a small cut or graze, or if a sebaceous gland (oil gland) or sweat gland in your skin becomes blocked. (
  • These anaerobic bacteria were isolated from an abdominal abscess. (
  • Abscesses may be caused by bacteria, parasites, and foreign substances. (
  • The most common are the pus-forming (pyogenic) bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus , which is nearly always the cause of abscesses under the skin. (

  • Known as empyema, gallbladder abscesses occur when the gallbladder fills up with pus. (
  • As an abscess forms, there is an accumulation of necrotic white cells and tissue cells in the center of the abscess surrounded by a layer of preserved neutrophils and a second layer of dilated vessels and fibroblasts. (
  • More often, the abscess remains and becomes walled off by a capsule of connective tissue. (
  • Abscesses occur when an area of tissue becomes infected and the body's immune system tries to fight and contain it. (
  • An abscess is an enclosed collection of liquefied tissue, known as pus, somewhere in the body. (
  • As the process progresses, the tissue begins to turn to liquid, and an abscess forms. (
  • It is the nature of an abscess to spread as the chemical digestion liquefies more and more tissue. (
